In my studio apartment I have setup what I describe as my "command center" which includes my desktop PC and a small table I can do some paperwork from or put some snacks on to eat (or eat breakfast). My phone is next to the PC and I can also watch TV at the same time. If I rotate my Breuer chair on the shaggy rug, I have a larger table I can do work on. I am a few feet from my kitchen so I can monitor food cooking on the stove.

I created this setup when I began telecommuting for a short time back in 2001, and it has served me well even after I stopped telecommuting (the company ended it, not me).

Sometimes, I post on here from my ladyfriend's place using her laptop.

Usually from my Lenovo laptop via our home wi-fi. Usually kitchen table or a small round table by the window overlooking the lake. Sometimes from the couch.

When traveling usually on my Kindle Fire HD using the mobile app. But I prefer the laptop because it is easier to type on.

I have always called it posting when I actually do write something, much more just reading for me.
Post almost exclusively from home, most reading from home as well.
My main computer in a laptop that usually stays docked in my home office when I am not traveling; I like the real keyboard, dual monitors, desk and chair.
All PC's are currently wireless (WiFi) in the house; AT&T Uverse with supplied router in basement.

Here in S \TX waiting to hear the news that nukes have destroyed NYC. I heard that it was something to worry about on the news yesterday.
